The Baby-sitters Club: Kristy’s Great Idea
Adapted by Raina Telgemeier
$11.99/$8.99 US (Paperback)
**** (out of five)

Ann M. Martin’s über-popular Baby-sitters Club series have sold over 175 million copies, but alas I was too engrossed in the angst of Archie to have read one as a kid and missed out — until now.
Cartoonist Raina Telgemeier adapts the adventures of four tween girls — Kristy, Mary Anne, Stacey and Claudia — into comic book form for the first time and really comes up with something sweet and bright. Sure, this volume is a little sappy, but its aimed squarely at the same young audience as its principle characters and it will no doubt please them greatly. It may even stir a nostalgic ember for those of you who devoured the club’s adventures back when you were a kid.
